Science writer Jo Wimpenny wrote the piece after speaking to many of the researchers who use the Woods in their work – as well as to our own Nigel Fisher, Conservator of Wytham Woods. She focuses mainly on the important long-term studies of blue and great tits that have been going on for decades, but touches on many related topics – from the challenges of weighing tiny birds to the impact of climate change and the intricate ecological relationships between birds, the caterpillars they feed on and the oak trees that in turn give the caterpillars their food.

The magazine is in newsagents now.
